Frequently asked questions

Get in touch to ask us a question about any aspect of Auchentoshan – or book your tour to visit us in the distillery. In the meantime, this might answer some of your questions.

How is Auchentoshan pronounced?

Hard to say. Harder to make. Easy to drink. Break it down and say it with us:
“OCH-en-TOSH-en”. Don’t you feel better already? Ask your nearest bartender and he should be able to fix you a dram.

What kind of drink is Auchentoshan?

We make Lowland Single Malt Scotch whisky and every drop of it is triple distilled.

What’s the best Scotch whisky in the world?

Let’s just say we are very happy with the smooth and drinkable whisky we create at the Auchentoshan distillery.

Where can I buy whisky near me?

From the banks of the Clyde, we send bottles of Auchentoshan to bars and spirit shops around the world. If you want to find out how to buy our whisky, just get in touch.

What gives whisky its colour?

Whisky is aged in casks. Depending on the type of cask used, the spirit takes on a golden, amber or yellow hue. The contact with barrels adds elements of colour and affects the final taste of the whisky.

What is a whisky chaser?

Beer and whisky have had a relationship since the very start. Often in Glasgow a “hauf and hauf” will be ordered with a glass of ale paired with a favourite whisky. It doesn’t matter who is chasing who as long as it’s a good match.

What is the difference between whisky and whiskey?
